I have been working at Starbucks full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Understanding and well-trained managers, nice benefits, and engaging work. The management and corporate want to make this a great place to work for lower-level employees. Free coffee!

Cons

Extremely difficult work for the pay. Long hours, with little downtime if any. The training, while intensive, takes a long time.

    Current Employee - Shift Supervisor in Manhattan Beach, CA

    I have been working at Starbucks part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The benefits are excellent for employees. There is a good sense of job security and a good understanding of the high level of expectations of employees. They encourage employees to grow their understanding and move up in the company.

    Cons

    There is quite a bit of disconnect between the district level, where many store decisions are made, and the daily work routine of the stores. While you are encouraged to move up in the company, it is very easy for employees to get caught in limbo or strung along after being told about the possibility of a promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bridge the gap between each store's individual needs and what the district management believes is needed.
